upcoming FDA approval for HBsAG quantitative

Thanks to everyone for the valuable information provided here. I've had Hep B for 8 yrs and on ent for 7 yrs. I sero converted to e-antigen negative after 7 months and DNA is undetectable. After reading about the S antigen quantitative test not being available in the US, I started emailing labs and doctors to see if anyone knew where to get this test done. One of the top liver specialists at Georgetown University Hospital in DC emailed that according to his sources, "several companies are due to have their HBsAG quantitative test approved by the FDA in the coming months and we may hear about it in the near future". From what I've read on this forum, I would assume Roche and Abbott would be the companies. So maybe some good news for those of us in the States.

That is very good news. Hopefully it will also be available in Australia too.
